Music Monday 01

I grabbed a list from a site regarding the 1,001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die. Hopefully it’s an accurate list. I’m going to try to get through list in one year, which would be about twenty songs each week. I will be creating this Music Monday Playlist to share which songs I will be listening to, for the week.

Remembering Pearl Harbor

My mom and I went to see Midway in the theater. I told my mom that we should go see it as part of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The movie starts with the attack at Pearl Harbor and shows events leading up to, and the battle at Midway. It is interesting to read about the general strategy and events, but it really hits home with the personal stories. Things like this should definitely not be forgotten.

Crab Feeds

Do you like crab? Seems that crab season also creates a crab FEED season that are usually fundraisers for schools, churches, and non-profits. I belong to a non-profit that has been putting on a crab feed for 26 years. Volunteering to work this event got me to try crab and I realized that I enjoy the seafood. I also learned that there are people out there that LOVE going to a bunch of crab feeds each year. I had no idea that it was such a thing to do, but they are a ton of fun (and a ton of food).

I want to take a moment to promote my organization’s crab feed (tickets are still available). And I plan to write up a couple of posts about working a crab feed and also attending one for “bucket” list checks. I really encourage you to go try one out.

Have you worked or been to one?
